Publisher's Summary

The beloved writing tandem of Rita Mae Brown and her feline collaborator, Sneaky Pie, craft another tantalizing mystery with Hiss of Death. Spring is in the air in Crozet, Virginia, and Mary Minor “Harry” Haristeen looks forward to her first season of harvesting grapes. But then Harry falls ill and finds herself in a hospital—where a nurse turns up dead. When another hospital staffer kicks the bucket soon after, it falls to Harry’s animal friends to crack the case.

Hiss of Death

I have enjoyed the Sneaky Pie Brown series. The last few episodes Brown got carried away with her conservative rhetoric but the stories were enjoyable. She toned it down a bit in this book. She kept me guessing as to what was the secret item in the container and, of course, I guessed wrong. Was glad the horses got to play hero this time along with Tucker and the cats. Was pleased to see she had Harry listening to audiobooks while in the truck and exercising. This is an enjoyable short book that makes a good change of pace between so called heavier reading.

Animals talk, we should listen!

Despite the "heavy" story lines entwining cancer and murder, this was a delightful "light read." While the humans are trying to figure our what's going on in their town, so are the animals who seems to always be a step ahead because they pay attention. Love the way Rita Mae gets the 2 species to intermingle. Gave me a fresh perspective to my own critters, 2 rescue felines. They talk and I am listening with fresh ears now. The narration seemed a bit stilted at times but did convey the the flavor of the central Virginia area, and that brought back memories, having lived in CVille for some years in the 1990s.
